Welcome to The Federalist Papers Committee

Greetings, TeaPartyNation members:

The Federalist Papers Committee is dedicated to re-examining a pivotal collection of articles in our nation's history, which persuaded the American public to support the ratification of the United States Constitution. These articles were published periodically under the eponymous Publius in several newspapers in New England, and were written by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison. The purpose of this committee is to deepen and enrich our understanding of The Federalist Papers.

Thank you for participating.

Our Constitution is a religious writing, not a secular one. Read the preamble!! Our founders Ordained the Constitution of the United States to secure our God given Blessings of liberty. The Federalist Papers confirm that our founders believe that our new Republic we last if we had morality. 

If you like this site, you will love the FREE online book the American Ideal 1776, it breaks down the 12 founding principals of the Constitution, and quotes letters written in our founders own hand to support each principal. check it out at http://lexrex.com/enlightened/AmericanIdeal/

If you ever need to counter a liberals post of the myth of separation of church and state, and would like to use credible third party source information use this library of Congress website url which shows letters, and other thumbnail exhibits  of our founders handwritten letters, etc. Awesome information. Liberals hate it when I pull this site out on them....

For example: 


It is no exaggeration to say that on Sundays in Washington during the administrations of Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809) and of James Madison (1809-1817) the state became the church. Within a year of his inauguration, Jefferson began attending church services in the House of Representatives. Madison followed Jefferson's example, although unlike Jefferson, who rode on horseback to church in the Capitol, Madison came in a coach and four. Worship services in the House--a practice that continued until after the Civil War--were acceptable to Jefferson because they were nondiscriminatory and voluntary. Preachers of every Protestant denomination appeared. (Catholic priests began officiating in 1826.) As early as January 1806 a female evangelist, Dorothy Ripley, delivered a camp meeting-style exhortation in the House to Jefferson, Vice President Aaron Burr, and a "crowded audience." Throughout his administration Jefferson permitted church services in executive branch buildings. The Gospel was also preached in the Supreme Court chambers.

Jefferson's actions may seem surprising because his attitude toward the relation between religion and government is usually thought to have been embodied in his recommendation that there exist "a wall of separation between church and state." In that statement, Jefferson was apparently declaring his opposition, as Madison had done in introducing the Bill of Rights, to a "national" religion. In attending church services on public property, Jefferson and Madison consciously and deliberately were offering symbolic support to religion as a prop for republican government. read more at http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/religion/rel06-2.html

The only response they can give to it, is all you do is copy and paste. Then when I slowly, meticulously, explain it to them in my own words, they say, well that just your opinion. They can't attack the facts, or the source, so they will attack you.

Hi everyone,

I just bought The Original Argument and can't wait to start reading it. Glad to be a part of this group!

Sadly, what is missing in the conscience of most Americans is the knowledge of what has held this great country of ours together; belief in God, Family and one of the greatest documents ever conceived with the help of divine providence, our Constitution.

     Today, people in desperation are wondering what is going on in our society and cannot put their finger on the problem. What they can see with their senses is that, living is becoming a hard proposition to sustain. It is like ever mounting problems are closing in on existence, mainly now coming from our institution of federal government.

      With our citizens working hard to make ends meet, there are those in the shadows of a growing power crafting ordinances that are molding a greater central totalitarian authority that is taking advantage of Americans in dismay.

      American brethren, we have but to look to our God for guidance and history as our compass and realize what brother Beck has stated, “We are the key to restoring our nation!” we must have the heart and will to take back the rings of power to change our outcome for the better.

Glenn Beck is publishing a translation done by University students some time this summer.
Comment by Dianne "Free Me" Peyton on May 15, 2011 at 3:10pm

These documents were written for us and I am very weary of anyone's version of them. With the proper study and the right dictionary as well as a copy of the Law of Nations, we can all have the same understanding our founders did. : ) I will agree that a "translated version" would be helpful alongside the original words but not a substitute.
